I worked for many years in the textile industry before I retired, and my company had a rag-trade customer whose premises were in the basement of the former police station in White's Row. He was Jewish, and I think about third generation in that business. He knew quite a bit about the Ripper, too. Trying to park anywhere close was an impossibility, and I nearly always had quite a long walk. He decided he'd had enough of the East End and moved to new premises in Wembley, but sadly there were no bagel houses around there....

Anyone know if the old cop-shop in White's Row is still standing?

Yes, I'm affraid we needed more offices and, there was money to be made, I'm sure the Mayor and other "officials" recieved the odd backhander to allow the destruction of another piece of London history!

What's the difference between this and the razing to the ground of 25 Cromwell Street? I mean I'm a fine one to talk given that I'm trying to recreate JtR scenes in 3D and VR but mourning the loss of horrendous murder locations is a bit... ghoulish innit?

(I expect backlash)

Lol yes, of course you are right but, this was a quiet little square in the city, ok a horrible murder happened there so yes, we shouldn't as you say mourn it's loss for that reason. For me, it was a place to sit quietly and imagine how it used to be, if there had been no murder there ever, it would still be a nice place to sit and just clear your thoughts. Like a lot of places, for instance, say, wapping wall the nice pubs down there, the walks by the river, the cobbled streets and the refurbished warehouses, they had/have a certain feel about them be it historical or one of architectural beauty. If the square looked like it did back then, it would be another interesting historical place in the middle of a busy city. I always felt very sad for Catherine Eddowes, much more so than any of the other victims, don't know why. In the end though, we've lost a quiet little square of great historical importance, much more than a murder site. In this mad city, a quiet little square is now a modern abomination of glass and steel and nobody cares - sad really.
